    genesis 1200 doesn't run above idle

    it starts but bogs down after an idle, i cleaned the carbs, drained the gas, new plugs, anything else to check for?

    ok so there was very little crap on the filter, the pto plug is very oily and i'm only getting 100 psi from that cylinder. Is that low enough to bog that motor down?

    Help, I'm having the same exact prob I think with my 99 Genesis, we have went over everything and after seeing this thread we even looking into those carb filters you talked about that we didnt even know existed and we found them perfectly clean as well.

    What is the compression on the other two cylinders? Sounds like you might have bigger problems

    I would want to find out why you are losing compression on the PTO plug. All cylinders shoud be within 10% of each other.

    It sounds like a fuel issue to me. I would go back through the entire fuel system and double check everything.
